I am guessing that the " stands for what we would today use as a point/forward slash to separate the £ amount from the shilling amount - ie £620.2 (six hundred and twenty pounds and two shillings) and £18.4 (eighteen pounds and four shillings. Until decimalisation in the 70s it would have also stated how many pennies too - £620.4.0
